There’s a lot of love for nostalgia and that definitely goes for the ‘80s. While mullets aren’t coming back, nor do we want them to, we are still very fond of many things from the decade. Movies in particular are still referenced to today in pop culture and other films, TV shows, and books. We love ‘80s classics like “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “The Shining,” “Labyrinth,” and “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” for starters. Another iconic thing from the ‘80s is the VHS. Pair an ‘80s classic and VHS and you have a total throwback. Etsy shop NancysJars creates original retro VHS lamps. Based in Wolverhampton, UK, the shop has been live on Etsy since 2016, creating amazing decor for our nostalgic needs. One of the most popular films from the ‘80s is of course a throwback within itself: “Back to the Future.”
The 1985 sci-fi favorite stars Michael J. Fox as the iconic Marty McFly, who travels back in time to 1955 and meets his future parents. Of course, Doc Brown is just as iconic of a character as the eccentric scientist and inventor of the time-traveling DeLorean. The film won several awards and nominations, including three Academy Award nominations, five BAFTA nominations, and four Golden Globe nominations. It’s still an iconic film today with references throughout pop culture.
Clever lamps for a nostalgic feel
This retro lamp is made from an actual VHS and features rainbow battery-powered LED lights. The VHS title sticker shows the “Back to the Future” title and Marty McFly and the Delorean. NancysJars also sells lamps featuring other classic movies on tape, including “Bambi,” “Pulp Fiction,” “Beetlejuice,” and “Edward Scissorhands.” The lamps can be made to order and can be based on any film, band, or actor, not just retro media. You can also choose what color lights or leave it to the shop to be creative. Light colors include white, red, rainbow, blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow.
The lamps are bright enough to light up the whole room and there are four power options. You can choose from AA battery, multi-functional USB, remote-control M-USB, and wall hanging CR2032. The multi-functional USB option gives you the function of the lights flashing fast, flashing slow, pulsate, or multicolored flash. The shop can also include a case stand if artwork is available and requested. Buy Here
